Actor Andy Samberg is engaged

Actor and former “Saturday Night Live”  cast member Andy Samberg, a 1996 graduate of Berkeley High, and musician Joanna Newsom are tying the knot.

“I can confirm that Andy Samberg and Joanna Newsom are engaged,” Samberg’s publicist Carrie Byalick told Reuters. The two have been dating for five years.

Newsom, 31, was spotted with a diamond ring at the Film Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica on Feb. 23. The two have yet to announce a wedding date.

Samberg, 34, was a fan of Newsom’s work even before they were introduced, according to Us magazine, and would see her perform. Newsom, who is known for her baroque folk music style, plays the harp and piano, and sings. — jta n
